Ein Stori PRESELI Our Story – Y gymuned ar-lein lewyrchus

Ein Stori PRESELI – Y gymuned ar-lein lewyrchus

Dros gyfnod y gaeaf, penderfynodd prosiect Ein Cymdogaeth Werin dreialu arddangosfa ar-lein wedi’i churadu gan y gymuned i ennyn diddordeb cymunedau rhanbarth Preseli yn eu hanes lleol arbennig. Roedd gweithgareddau a digwyddiadau wyneb yn wyneb y prosiect wedi dod yn amhosibl oherwydd rheoliadau’r llywodraeth ynghylch y firws, felly ceisiwyd dull creadigol o ddarparu ymdeimlad o gymuned ynghyd â chymorth a chefnogaeth gydag unigrwydd ac arwahanrwydd yn ein hardal wledig.

Aeth y Swyddog Prosiect, Sophie Jenkins, ymlaen i greu grŵp Facebook ar thema wythnosol i annog cyfraniadau gan aelodau’r gymuned. Dechreuodd yn araf, ond o’r diwedd enillodd lawer o fomentwm gydag bron i 800 o aelodau bellach wedi ymuno, ac yn tyfu’n gyson bob wythnos. Mae cyfraniadau cymunedol hen ffotograffau, fideos ac atgofion wedi dod yn duedd ddyddiol; gyda llawer o aelodau hefyd yn darganfod cyfeillgarwch coll hir a chysylltiadau teuluol nad oeddent erioed yn gwybod eu bod yn bodoli. Mae hefyd wedi bod yn arbennig gweld y Gymraeg yn cael ei defnyddio’n helaeth ar y grŵp, gan gynnwys y dafodiaith rydyn ni mor adnabyddus amdani.

Bydd y grŵp yn aros ar agor fel cymuned ar-lein, a bydd yn gweithredu fel etifeddiaeth i’r prosiect hyd yn oed ar ôl iddo gau ar ddiwedd 2021. Os oes gennych ddiddordeb mewn cymryd rhan yn y grŵp ar-lein chwiliwch “Ein Stori PRESELI Our Story” ar Facebook, neu e-bostiwch sophie.jenkins@planed.org.uk i gael mwy o wybodaeth.

Ein Stori PRESELI Our Story – The thriving online community

Over the winter period, the Preseli Heartlands Communities project decided to pilot a community curated online exhibition to engage the communities of the Preseli region in their special local history. The project’s face-to-face activities and events had become impossible due to government regulations regarding the virus, so a creative approach was sought to provide a sense of community as well as help and support with loneliness and isolation in our rural area.

Project Officer Sophie Jenkins, went on to create a weekly themed Facebook group to encourage contributions from community members. It started slowly, but finally gained a great deal of momentum with close to 800 members now joined, and growing steadily every week. Community contributions of old photographs, videos and memories have become a daily trend; with many members also discovering long lost friendships and family connections they never knew existed. It has also been special to see the Welsh language used extensively on the group, including the dialect we are so well known for.

The group will remain open as an online community, and will act as a legacy to the project even after it closes at the end of 2021. If you are interested in participating in the online group search “Ein Stori PRESELI Our Story” on Facebook , or email sophie.jenkins@planed.org.uk for more information.

Blas y Preseli – HERMON

 

Cyflwynwyd gweithdy cyntaf gwych yng Nghanolfan Hermon dan arweiniad Luke Conlon ar dreftadaeth fwyd rhanbarth Preseli ddydd Sadwrn diwethaf y 15fed o Chwefror. Gwnaeth y grŵp dorth draddodiadol o fara – “Bara Crai” a Buns neu Miogod Sir Benfro. Fe wnaethant wylio ffilmiau a gwrando ar glipiau fideo gan Casgliad y Werin; pob un wrth rannu atgofion eu hunain am fwyd a thraddodiadau teuluol. I gloi’r diwrnod, rhannodd y grŵp bowlen dwym o gawl a rhoi cynnig ar dafell o’u Bara Crai wedi’i bobi’n ffres! Ni allwn aros i ymweld â Dinas yr wythnos nesaf i samplo mwy o’r un peth…

A fantastic first workshop at Canolfan Hermon led by Luke Conlon on the food heritage of the Preseli region was delivered last Saturday the 15th of February. The group made a traditional loaf of bread – “Bara Crai” and some Pembrokeshire Buns. They watched films and listened to video clips from People’s Collection Wales; all whilst sharing memories of their own about food and family traditions. To end the day, the group shared a warming bowl of cawl and tried a slice of their freshly baked Bara Crai! We can’t wait to visit Dinas next week for more of the same…

Llesiant yn Nhirlun y Preseli – Wellbeing in the Preseli Landscape

Cafwyd diwrnod ysbrydoledig yn ddiweddar yng nghoetiroedd hyfryd a mawreddog Pentre Ifan; yn archwilio’r ffordd y gall ein cysylltiad hynafol â thirwedd a natur Preseli ddylanwadu ar ein hiechyd a’n lles. Dan arweiniad Andrew Dugmore o Reconnect in Nature (reconnectinnature.org.uk) gwnaethom rannu ein teimladau o fod yn yr awyr agored yn nhirwedd Preseli, ac arbrofi gyda thechnegau ymwybyddiaeth ofalgar i’n helpu i ddeall a dyfnhau ein cysylltiad â’r byd naturiol. Buom hefyd yn siarad am y ffyrdd y byddai ein cyndeidiau wedi byw a faint yn agosach at natur a’r awyr agored y byddent wedi bod; gan eu bod yn dibynnu arno am eu hanfodion sylfaenol a’u goroesiad. Diolch i bawb a fynychodd y diwrnod!

An inspiring day was had recently at the beautiful and majestic woodlands of Pentre Ifan; exploring the way our ancient connection to the Preseli landscape and nature can influence our health and wellbeing. Lead by Andrew Dugmore of Reconnect in Nature (reconnectinnature.org.uk) we shared our feelings of being outdoors in the Preseli landscape, and experimented with mindfulness techniques to help us understand and deepen our connection to the natural world. We also talked around the ways in which our ancestors would have lived and how much closer to nature and the outdoors they would have been; as they depended on it for their basic necessities and survival. Thanks to all that attended the day!

Digwyddiad Olaf y Slam Farddoniaeth – Final Poetry Slam Event

Trwy gydol y gwanwyn a’r haf hwn, cyflwynodd Celfyddydau Span yr ail brosiect celfyddydau cymunedol sydd wedi’i ymgorffori ym mhrosiect Ein Cymdogaeth Werin. Slam Barddoniaeth Preseli | Prosiect ysgrifennu a pherfformio barddoniaeth gymunedol oedd Slam Barddaidd y Preseli wedi’i leoli yng nghanol rhanbarth Preseli. Comisiynodd Celfyddydau Span y bardd Cymraeg eithriadol Karen Owen fel Bardd Preseli a oedd yn preswylio yn y sir am dri chyfnod ym mis Mai, Mehefin a Gorffennaf.

Throughout this spring and summer Span Arts delivered the second community arts elelement the Ein Cymdogaeth Werin project.  The Preseli Poetry Slam | Slam Barddoniaeth y Preseli was a community poetry writing and performance project set in the heart of the Preseli region.  Span Arts commissioned exceptional Welsh language poet Karen Owen as the Preseli Poet who was in residence in the county for three periods in May, June and July.

Yn ystod ei chyfnod preswyl aeth Karen ati i ysbrydoli pobl Sir Benfro i godi eu pensil ac ysgrifennu am eu bywydau yn yr ardal; eu meddyliau a’u teimladau am y dirwedd a’r bobl. Mae’r cerddi sy’n deillio o hyn yn fyfyrdodau personol, sensitif a doniol ar fywyd Preseli o amrywiaeth o safbwyntiau.

During her residency Karen set about inspiring the people of Pembrokeshire to pick up their pens and write about their lives in the area; their thoughts and feelings about the landscape and the people.  The resulting poems are personal, sensitive and thought-provoking reflections on Preseli life from a variety of perspectives.

Roedd y prosiect yn wirioneddol ddwyieithog ac yn rhoi llwyfan creadigol i bobl ymgysylltu â’r iaith ni waeth beth oedd lefel eu cymhwysedd, yr angerdd a’r brwdfrydedd a ddaeth i’r amlwg. Fel y nododd Karen, ‘cerddi Cymraeg yw’r rhain i gyd, ni waeth ym mha iaith y maent wedi cael eu hysgrifennu’.

The project was genuinely bilingual and gave a creative platform for people to engage with the language no matter what their level of competence, it was passion and enthusiasm which came to the fore.  As Karen remarked, ‘these are all Welsh poems, no matter what language they have been written in’.

Trefnodd Span weithdai mewn ysgolion, tafarndai, neuaddau pentref a sesiynau un i un yng nghartrefi cyfranogwyr ynysig ac oedrannus. Arweiniodd yr amrywiaeth amrywiol hon o feirdd cymunedol at ymgysylltiad cyfoethog â’r pwnc a’r iaith a throsodd dull personol Karen hyd yn oed y rhai mwyaf amharod i feirdd ysgrifennu a pherfformio’n ddiweddarach.

Span Arts organised workshops in schools, pubs, village halls and one-to-one sessions in the homes of isolated and elderly participants.  This diverse array of community poets gave rise to a rich engagement with the subject matter and language and Karen’s personable manner converted even the most reluctant to poets to write and later perform.

Daeth y prosiect i ben gyda Slam Barddoniaeth ddathliadol yn Neuadd Goffa Trefdraeth. Gwahoddwyd yr holl gyfranogwyr i ddod draw i berfformio eu cerddi i gynulleidfa o’u cyfoedion, i rannu diod a rhywfaint o fwyd. Roedd y noson yn llwyddiant mawr yn llawn chwerthin, canu adar a rhai perfformiadau teimladwy. Daeth un ar hugain o feirdd cymunedol draw i ddarllen tua deg ar hugain o gerddi i dorf sylwgar. Pan wahoddwyd y gynulleidfa i roi eu hadborth ar ffurf cerdd, cododd llawer i’r her. Fe wnaeth Karen sgleinio’r digwyddiad gyda première ddeinamig o’i cherdd newydd a ysgrifennwyd mewn ymateb i’r prosiect.

The project culminated in a celebratory Poetry Slam |Slam Barddoniaeth at Newport Memorial Hall.  All participants were invited to come along and perform their poems to an audience of their peers, to share a drink and some food.  The evening was a great success full of laughter, birdsong and some moving performances.  Twenty-one community poets came along to read around thirty poems to an attentive crowd.  When the audience were invited to give their feedback in the form of a poem, many rose to the challenge.   Karen polished off the event with a dynamic premiere of her new poem written in response to the project.

Diolch yn fawr i Span Arts, y Bardd Karen Owen ac i bawb a gymerodd ran yn y gweithdai Slam Barddoniaeth a’r digwyddiad olaf.

Many thanks to Span Arts, Poet Karen Owen and to everybody that took part in the Poetry Slam workshops and final event.
